Inside the case is fully signed with the wording. DS&S' for David Shackman & Sons who were the official case makers for ROLEX in the UK in this era.
The case is in excellent condition. The back shows NO dings that I can see and just very light normal wear marks. The case sides have no dings that I can see. The bezel is in excellent condition. The beautiful integrated solid 9 carat small gold lugs are excellent.The inside of the case is fully hallmarked for 9 carat gold with the Assay mark for LONDON and has the date mark for 1955. The case measures 2.0 cms (20mm) across.
Excluding the lugs and crown. This is a wonderful rare Waffle textured white beautiful dial. The dial is in EXCELLENT condition and is of high quality as it has gold applied Arabic numerals around it. The dial is FULLY SIGNED'ROLEX' and'PRECISION' and has a black painted ROLEX symbol under 12 o'clock.The golden steel hands are in nice condition. The watch has a plastic crystal which is in good condition showing only light wear. This is a wonderful clean genuine high grade ROLEX FULLY SIGNED cal 1400 quality 18 jewel movement. It is also signed'18 rubies' and'Swiss Made' in beautiful type set on the plates. This fantastic ROLEX MOVEMENT is in working order, and is running well.
I have timed it over 24 hours and it keeps time to within about 3 mins per day. As usual a full service would be recommended for optimum performance and timekeeping. The crown is gold in color, is unsigned and may be a replacement at some time.
All in all this is a beautiful genuine ROLEX made original movement. This beautiful wrist watch is fitted with a lovely solid 9 carat gold HERRINGBONE design band. The band is in excellent condition and it is fully hallmarked for SOLID 9 CARAT GOLD.The watch and band measure a total of just over 7 inches in length. I can assume that it would fit up to an 7 inch inch wrist comfortably or smaller if required as it has a 4 step ladder clasp. This beautiful solid gold ROLEX wrist watch comes with its original green 2x signed ROLEX BOX. The box exterior shows a little normal age related wear, as does the interior.
THIS IS A FANTASTIC ORIGINAL AND RARE SOLID 9 CARAT GOLD ROLEX WRISTWATCH IN BEAUTIFUL CONDITION. I describe all of my items to the best of my knowledge.
